Here Comes Sunshine is hot. The jam out of Truckin' features some amazing Jerry slide. Wharf Rat is beautifully played.
February and March were blistering with a more expansive and jazzy sound.
'73 is where it's at. The penultimate GD sound.
Ilove March 1973! Especially the Spectrum, Baltimore and Sprinfield shows. ....late year shows are incredible too!

What an amazing year, everyone knows that. I am just starting to get into spring '73. And why has it taken so long? Every damn song could have the word '>jam' attached to it.
This show contains my current favorite 'Playin', 'Greatest Story', 'Candyman', 'Wharf Rat', and of course the Truckin that melts into Weather Report is indescribably perfect.
I can't reiterate enough how awesome this Playin' is...please listen you're absolutely positively guaranteed to start dancing right on the spot!
WHY DO THEY HAVE TO BE SO FUCKIN' GOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!

Subject: first show
When Wolfman came out alot of people booded. You could hear Wolfman quickly say " Whoever likes the Dead LIGHT UP" Its seemed quite a few of us lit up more than matches. We repeated this when Jerry said "just like wolfman jack" during Ramble On Rose. Quite a Cosmic moment for me being my first of many shows.
Subject: Spring '73
I just wanted to echo Stella and JimF below, about the spring of '73 getting overlooked. Classic example of the difference between music people and Dead Heads. SCertain shows/tours develop these reputation sin these music cliques that are new form only the last 15-20 years or so. When in reality, us people actually at the shows, rememebr things entirely differently. Liek Coprnell '77, sure a great show, we all had the tape in the '80's, but we also wanted Boston, Buffalo, Tuscaloosa, Baltimore, etc. But now 25 years later all you hear from these newbies is Cornell, Cornell. This is another example of that - ignore the hype, listen to the band, all tours have something to offer.
I would add Boston Garden 4.3.73 to the list JimF threw out there of good spring shows - arguably the best Here Comses Sunshine ever, forget the Deadbase reviews and the newbie hype - this is a monster version.
As for this show - classic '73. Awesome improv levels reached during WRS and Playin, and solid versions of the first set material. Stream it now!
WOOPS - 4.2.73 is Boston Garden and it was already mentioned, my apologies...
Subject: good stuff right here!
i especially like the weather report suite prelude. do i hear some "darkness darkness" theme around 3:40 or so? man i love the dead.
Subject: Oh Yeah!
A show from my hometown, you know it's gonna be good! Only listened to a few songs from the first set but can definitely hear all pistons firing in this one.
Going along with "monster show" discussion, i'd have to highly, highly endorse the 05-26 Kezar Stadium show they played a couple months later. One of my top five favorite Dead shows.

Fall/winter 73 does get a lot of hype, and deservedly so, but the first half of the year has equally wonderful moments that should not be overlooked, like the big jam out of Truckin' from this show. Honestly I probably find myself turning to shows like this, and 3/24, 3/28, 4/2, 3/22, etc more than the Fall shows. This one is definitely a must have for 73. It's as good as a 73 board Miller transfer gets, and again, the second set suite of jams is truly superb. You get a FAT jam out of Truckin, a Wharf Rat, an Eyes, AND a Morning Dew. Nuff said.
Subject: Wow! Forgive me father for I have sinned.
I am guilty, as many of you, for listening to more fall shows than spring shows from 1973. Well that just changed. This is a monster show with almost everything you could ask for in the first set.The Playing is incredible.
Then you get a taste of some '73 commercialness with an unlikely appearence of Wolfman Jack, if you have to ask continue reading on. The second set is one masterpiece.Ramble On works quite well as the opener followed by a driving Big River that rips.Next is an early rendition of HC Sunshine, a taste of the fall to come, the band is excited to play the "new" material and explores it well.
This show does have a relaxed pace but all songs are played with focus and passion but with many surprises. A smokin version of Greatest Story that is off the hook is a perfect example. A rarely played Candyman is also very sweet too.
A quick cowboy song and then it is onto a 79 minute masterpiece of music that begins with He's Gone. I will fast forward to Wharf Rat which is stellar, fragile and brimming with conviction. This flows effortlessly into a beautiful Bobby McGee, which I love, then into a slower paced Eyes that is exciting and dynamic with Phil really adding much to it.Keith is on big time too. It all ends at where it should, with an amazing reading of Morning Dew.I like the tranistion into it,it is unique too.
Jerry is passionate, subtle and full of conviction. His solo at the bridge is like being on an warm summer night breeze. Phil closes it out with a powerful ending note too.
Subject: Mesmerizing Jam
This contains one of the greatest jam moments ever - the jam between Truckin' and Wharf Rat, the WRS Prelude jam. Pure magic. Mesmerizing. Five Stars for the recording and show.
